REVIEW: Fear of the Heart by Hettie Ivers

Wonderfully addictive ….

I have not laughed so much at the start of book in a long way time…three pages in and I was desperate to find someone to talk to about it…..this is the second book in the series and starts exactly where the other left off…a paranormal , dark in parts, sexy, thrilling romance…what more could a fan of the genre desire….the focus is on the main characters Alex and Milena who are having to re-evaluate their lives and allegiances whilst a threat to the current world order is lurking dangerously close…

The characters in this book are so well written and the relationships and interactions between them all complicated and addictive…. Alex and Milena remain at the heart of the story as they fight for and against each other…I love the fact that in this book Alex has recognised his true feelings and his emotional intelligence begins to develop…..I was fascinated by Milena’s conflict as she now has to come to terms with her inner she-wolf leading to some really comical moments..Not only did the relationship between Alex and Milena hot up verbally but also their sexual tension and chemistry is volcanic..and when Alex expresses his regret for his previous actions and decisions the only way he knows how…. Milena was quick to point out that ‘Alex proved to be a natural at nonverbal apology’……

Alex’s family are fabulous their exchanges and their sibling rivalries are hilarious but they are also loyal, loving and protective of those they care about……a special mention here for Guadalupe, Alcaeus’s longtime human housekeeper, who was a wonderfully written larger than life personality…

As the second in the series this book felt a bit like the middle sequel in a film franchise acting as a link between the scene setting beginning and the explosive finale… the plot development in relation to the larger werelock world conflict was addition the werelocks and the world they inhabit had a comprehensive back story that was fascinating but also complex and at times I lost the family connections and threads… however that said the authors skill at setting a scene and creating a genuinely intriguing imagined world made this story an absolute pleasure to read….

This is a captivating paranormal romance; there is darkness and steamy, dirty sex and the actions of the werelocks are often reprehensible but to me they are all perfectly imperfect…I can not wait to read the next in the series…….
